But don’t worry. He hears you…
Last week on Metro And Gordon Do The Internet, we discussed the crimes committed by Michael Bay with his reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
First there was the change from “Mutant” to “Alien“. Which is insane. It soils the sanctity of the ooze.
Then over the weekend came the news that these Turtles would no longer be “Teenage“. Which again is crazy talk, It’s like making Scooby Doo a Senior Citizen Gerbil.
Well Mr. Bay has heard your cries and has released this statement on his site.
‘Ninja Turtles’ Title
Paramount marketing changed the name. They made the title simple. The characters you all remember are exactly the same, and yes they still act like teenagers. Everything you remember, why you liked the characters, is in the movie. This script is being developed by two very smart writers, with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles. They care VERY MUCH about making this film for the fans. Everyone on this team cares about the fans. Just give them a chance. Jonathan the director, is a major fan of the whole franchise. HE’S NOT GOING TO LET YOU DOWN.
Well, there’s that. Does that comfort you at all? Or are you still worried that Josh Duhamel will play Splinter?
